We are starting to get quite a bit more daylight now..

And with the additional sun has come a break from the cold. No more -56f!

I spend a wonderful Monday out biking in the Whites, and enjoyed a wonderful 11 hour ride. It was great, but alas, I was in too big of a hurry leaving the parking lot, and left without enough snacks. The 1k calories I had with me was not enough for 10+ hours, as I found out. Not the end of the world though, and I enjoyed a wonderful day of riding in the sun.

I saw three moose durring my wanderings which is fairly unusual for the Whites. Perhaps all the fires in the last ten years have changed the vegetation to be a bit more friendly to them.

The cold weather had apparently taken a toll on some of the other inhabitants of the whites..

For the last hour of my ride I rode with a wonderful full moon illuminating trail, making for nice night riding.

Only two more weeks to the big one.

Hope everyone is out enjoying spring!
